In bug 816199, we're creating a Firefox OS Simulator landing page on the Marketplace devhub.

In order to be able to install the add-on from there without sending people visibly through AMO, I'd like to add the Simulator to the set of add-ons here:

Couple of questions:
- ashort or clouserw, the add-on has different files per platform. Will this direct link detect the user's platform on the fly, or do we have to add 3 instances to this API and do the platform detection on our side?
- Myk: When do you expect the simulator to be up on AMO? I believe even a temporary submission would suffice to get this bug fixed.

Allen: do you know the answer to the question in comment 0?  I don't know off the top of my head.  Fred: If you want to test it, you can just send the right referrer and it will work -- either sending you a default file or doing detection.

As far as adding FX Simulator to the list (the point of this bug) - I don't think that is necessary.  You should just be able to link to the add-on.  Is that not working?

Quick sanity check:

The link will be this:


I presume this URL 404s at the moment because the add-on is not reviewed yet? Unable to test, we might have to wait until the reviewed version is live to confirm?

Works just fine as the URL and is the link we send people to. The simulator is reviewed and the link works, so this seems like a WONTFIX to me.

This bug is about installing the add-on directly from the devhub. Let's only close this after we've established this works :)
